Welcome to The Sutton Academy
Duke of Edinburgh Award
This half term marks the end of the Duke of Edinburgh Award season and is proving to be a very busy, but successful time. During the last week, 4 different groups carried out trips to near by areas in order to complete different sections of their expedition section.
Practice expeditions were carried out by the Year 11 Gold Group as well as the Year 10 Bronze boys and girls cohort. All groups managed to complete the walk with the boys impressing staff with their fantastic team work. The groups all managed to navigate the footpaths and bridal ways of Rivington, following the reservoirs all the way to Bibby's Farm where they stayed the night under canvas.
On Friday, the year 9 Gold Group started their DofE journey with a walk along the Wirral coastline. There, they were dropped off at Seacombe ferry terminal and walked to New Brighton promenade taking in the sights and attractions of the area along the way. The group had a fantastic day visiting the Town Hall, Vale Park, The Black Pearl and then New Brighton. They were greeted by a Marine march followed by a fighter jet fly-by.
The group now can't wait until their camping trips later this year.
